I was in need of a lucky door prize for my craft group, and I wanted something quick and easy….. this Quilted List Taker is one of my favourite patterns - it's a pattern by JCasa Handmade…. you can find it HERE. I made this one this afternoon. I just started pulling any Christmas fabric scrap that looked like it would fit and made up my patchwork piece first….
|wonky patchwork - just sew it on any way you like! and then have some fun with crazy straight line quilting!|
|I add a row of stay stitching all around the outside edge, this helps keep your patchwork intact. This stitching will be inside the finished seam allowance.|
then I trimmed it all back even with my piece of wadding…….
I didn't get photos of the next steps, but I layered the pieces… and got it all stitched together. I found a cute antique button in my stash and there you have it! one lucky door prize!
Check out JCasa Handmade for lots of lovely patterns and ideas!
I have used these List Takers for years now. I have one for "everything" and one for "Christmas". It's great to have everything in one place - for instance in my Christmas one I have my cards, stamps, address list and gift list. In my "everything" one, I have…. well…. everything! you know, the stuff you need when you go out shopping!
One lucky door prize done!
